Centre for Online Learning

ATU continues to grow and strengthen in online learning, placing ATU in a leading position in Ireland.
Presently ATU Sligo has in excess of 4,500 online/blended learning students, enrolled on over 140 programmes spanning Levels 6 to 10 of the National Qualifications Framework.

We have several thousand students enrolled on free MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and approximately 6,000 students taking industry-related short courses for professional development.

With an applied focus, championing equality, diversity, and inclusion with the belief that education should be accessible to all, ATU seeks to extend its portfolio of programmes to support upskilling in a range of areas in demand by industry, enterprise, and the community. 

This is evidenced by introduction of more than 20 new programmes in this prospectus as well the inclusion of some programmes in innovative formats, such as full-time online programmes aimed at students who would find attending on campus too challenging and work-based learning programmes.
